The manufacturing industry presents many challenges no matter what products are being produced whether it be computer hardware, airplanes, automobiles, medical products, steel or household goods.

To overcome these challenges you need a complete product line that meets the individual needs of each section of the factory whether it be an order picker, and electric fork lift or a high capacity IC lift truck. Manufacturer’s need to consider run time per battery charge – if using electric – in addition to comfort, ergonomics and ability to move smoothly across spacious facilities.

Your manufacturing operation may need a mix of man-up turret trucks, three-wheel electric counterbalance lift trucks, tow tractors, four-wheel electric pneumatic forklifts, walkie pallet trucks, powered pallet trucks, high-level order pickers, stand-up end controls, and pantograph reach trucks.

RAKA’s full line of equipment will serve every aspect of your manufacturing space.



Whether you need new, used or rental manufacturing machinery, RAKA has you covered with our large selection of high-quality equipment. Our inventory includes:

  • Forklifts: Forklifts are essential for quickly and easily moving materials around your manufacturing site. Choose from diesel-, gas- and electric-powered options to safely and smoothly tackle a wide variety of tasks.
  • Order pickers: Order pickers are ideal for applications that require high racking and narrow aisle maneuvering, as they allow users to reach places that would normally be inaccessible.
